The most important campaign
- I have just heard on CW Talk Radio Dr. David Long of East Carolina
University state his belief the the Atlanta Campaign was the most
important campaign in the Civil War.
From a purely parochial point of view I would like to believe this.
As I live in the midst of the Atlanta campaign but I must confess that
I had never thought of it as being the most important. I'm not sure
how I would rank campaigns in order of importance or or even what
criteria to use in such a ranking. I suppose if I had been pressed I
probably would have reflexsivly picked Viksburg and Gettysburg as one
and two and would not be sure which was one and which was two.
